Forster went on to state that the President of the Historical Society will be featured Tuesday morning from the Excelsior School Building on the fairgrounds…

Forster stated that virtual events Wednesday will include one from the Hormel Building on the fairgrounds, and another will be a Humpday History feature at noon from the original Mower County Fair building…

The presentations can be viewed on the Historical Society’s Facebook page at [email protected], and they will also be posted on their webpage at mowercountyhistory.org.
